Places: Meet the Chefs at Prune Beirut

I constantly hear about Prune Bistro from friends and family. Their feedback is always positive but I’d never had the chance to try it until yesterday. Sarah, SerVme‘s co-founder, called me to join her for lunch at Prune where an event called Meet the Chefs is being held every Tuesday of the month. Yesterday was Chef Karim Bibi’s turn to cook at Prune. I was happy to hear I’d be trying out his food as I had the chance to take a class with Karim last summer at Kitchen Lab for a friend’s bachelor party.

Karim Bibi’s story is inspiring. After working for more than 10 years in the Advertising and Marketing industry, the Chef decided to change careers and switch to the culinary sector. He thus moved to New York City and studied at the International Culinary Center. His philosophy is simple: passion for cooking and love for great ingredients.

Our lunch experience yesterday was warm and inviting. The atmosphere of the restaurant screamed of joie de vivre and conviviality. A glass of wine and tasty food kept coming at us. Here’s the entire menu:

Appetizers

Oven Broiled Prawns with lemon zest breadcrumbs

Desserts

Strawberry Shortcake

The Wine I had was a Red Caprice D’Antoine, Vallée du Rhone 2011. Sarah had the White Chai de bordes, Blanc Bordeaux 2012.

What I loved the most about this experience is that we got to keep the menu booklet which contained all of the recipes! I will be trying that chocolate decadent cake really soon and sharing it with you. Meanwhile, here’s the recipe. The trick I think is in the chocolate Karim used, and I was intrigued by the use of sour cream. Let me know if you try it before me.

Chocolate Decadence Cake by Karim Bibi

Ingredients (for 6 persons)

For the Cake

  • 120 g unsalted butter, chopped
  • 220 g brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 240 g sour cream (room temperature)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225 g plain flour
  • 75 g Dutch cocoa
  • 0.5 tsp baking powder

For the Ganache

  • 200 g dark chocolate, finely chopped
  • 300 ml thickened cream

How to make it

  1. Make the ganache: Place the chocolate in a large heatproof bowl. Place the cream in a saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Pour the cream over the chocolate and stir until melted and combined. Divide the ganache between 2 bowls. Cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate one bowl and leave the second bowl at room temperature.
  2. Preheat the oven to 16 degrees celsius.
  3. Make the cake: Place butter and sugar in a saucepan. Cook, stirring, over medium heat for 3 minutes or until the sugar dissolves and the butter is melted. Remove from heat and whisk in the eggs, sour cream and vanilla. Sift over with cocoa, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda, then whisk until smooth. Divide the batter between 2 pans and bake for 35 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Let them cool for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the ganache from the fridge and stir until smooth, then spread over the top of one cake. Top it with the second cake and pour over the room temperature ganache.
  5. Serve!

The Top 5 Coffee Shops to Work in Beirut

We live in a world where freelancing is becoming the trend, where bloggers are increasing and where meetings take place in trendy places instead of a standard office. Coffee shops are thus the place to be. A few days ago, I got a message from a friend asking us where he could go sit and work calmly with fast wifi and a nice cup of coffee. That’s when it dawned on me that I only knew about 2 places – the ones I visit all the time. But there surely had to be others. So I kept digging in my head and came up with those 5 places I think are the top to go work in.

Breadonbutter’s Top 5 Coffee shops to work in Beirut

Urbanista – Gemmayzé

The interior of the place is already enough to make you productive and creative. It’s really a coffee shop/library where you can spend the day working, eating and meeting people.

L’Appartement Beirut – Sioufi, Ashrafieh

coffee shops | breadonbutter

This is a calmer place to work for days when you really have to concentrate. This charming appartment turned coffee shop/drinks/art showcasing place is welcoming and warmly decorated.

Dar Bistrot and Books – Clémenceau, Hamra

coffee shops | breadonbutter

I like to go work at Dar on mornings just because of their excellent breakfast. If the weather is not too hot, their garden can be used as your inspirational place. Book lovers, prepare to rejoice.

Balima – Saifi Village

coffee shops | breadonbutter

A quiet place in the midst of the city, surrounded by painting-like architecture will sure spruce up your creativity. A nice tea pot and your laptop will suffice.

Papercup – Mar Mikhael

coffee shops | breadonbutter

 

Papercup has no wifi but you can take it as good news and go there to quietly work offline, surrounded by books. Order a latte and a piece of their daily cake and you’re all set! You can read all about the place on this link.

 Where do you work? Any additional recommendation?

Places: Sant’Eustachio Caffè in Rome

Back in Rome last August (click here for more details), we fell in love with this place my sister had recommended (here). On the day we stumbled upon Sant’Eustachio Caffé, we weren’t really looking for it, but just the sight of it made us feel like we had reached an oasis in the middle of the August heat. Once we’d taken a seat on one of the tables outside, we quickly learnt the difference of price between being served outside or just having a quick coffee inside, standing at the coffee bar. We opted for a seat, 1 cold coffee for me, one fresh Kampari/Orange for Jean and both of our captivating books. I can still feel the charm and pleasantness of it all 🙂

sant'eustachio | breadonbutter

Sant’Eustachio Caffé is located in the heart of Rome, just minutes away from Piazza Navona and the Pantheon, facing the actual Basilica named for the martyr of Saint Eustace. We went there twice while we were there for a nice coffee a l’italiana. When you enter to order, you learn the charming story of this place.

sant'eustachio | breadonbutter

Sant’Eusatchio has been successful and crowded since 1938. Kissinger and many other international famous people have visited it. I say Kissinger because the owners are so proud of his visit that they hung the newspaper story about it on the wall and on their website (you can see the picture below).

sant'eustachio | breadonbutter

Sant’Eustachio is not merely a Coffee shop, but also a Roaster. Brothers Raimondo and Roberto Ricci began running the Caffè in 1999 to continue the family tradition of selecting coffee varieties and offering a range of product prepared with a legendary secret blend. Their priority is only one: ensure consistent quality. The Sant’Eustachio coffee blend is made with the best Arabica beans. The raw coffee is slowly roasted over wood.

sant'eustachio | breadonbutter

You can of course sit down for a nice cup of coffee but you can also purchase it and make it at home.

All the coffee varieties, roasted, washed and selected, are top quality. The freshness and the high quality of the product guarantee an ever fresh fragrance and a quintessential aroma which cannot be found in the coffees of large-scale retail trade.

sant'eustachio | breadonbutter

Of course, the place is now more touristic and more expensive than typical Italian coffee places, but in my opinion, at least one visit there would be a nice addition to your trip.

Another great thing about Sant’Eustachio Caffé is their Buon Caffé initiative

The Buon Caffé Program is an initiative by Sant’Eustachio Il Caffè. The Program consists in donating the extra proceeds from the sale of the traditional Sant’Eustachio Blend to COOPFAM, the Brazilian Fairtrade certified co-op from which Sant’Eustachio  buys coffee. The protagonist of this initiative is the consumer who, through a traceability procedure, can actually control the use of the proceeds.

Where to Cozy Up By The Fireplace This Winter

Unlike last winter, this one promises to be cold and rainy. Unsurprisingly,  everyone seems happy about it. After all, we needed the water and we all miss going skiing on weekends and splurging on Fondue dinners at night in front of a cool fireplace. Over the years, we have explored a lot of cozy places with nice chimneys. So to give you ideas on what to do and where to go this winter, here’s a first list of some of the best fireplaces in town.

Lola – Bikfaya – Lebanon

Located in the heart of the mountains, Lola is a warm restaurant with a magnificent view that opens its doors in summer and winter. For spicy lovers, I strongly suggest their special spicy fondue. You won’t regret it!

Byblos Sur Mer – Jbeil – Lebanon

This cozy hotel holds a special place in my heart as that’s where we got married a year ago. With a view over the great Byblos port, they also offer a comfy place to sit and relax by the chimney. Grab a book, order a nice hot cocoa and read the day away.

La Gargote – Broumana – Lebanon

One of the rare authentic bistrots in the country, La Gargote‘s atmosphere has always stayed true to itself. Head there for a nice Soupe à l’Oignon and enjoy the crackles of the chimney wood in the background.

Ristorante La Traviata – Gemmayze – Lebanon

For the ultimate urban winter experience, you must try La Traviata‘s grilled chestnuts! The best thing about it all is that you get to sit outside with your coat still on, sipping wine and eating bits of parmesan cheese. It’ll be up and running by Monday so hurry up and book a table.

Pierre and Friends – Batroun – Lebanon

Dinner at Vicolo 88 Rome

Giovanni De Luca, is a person I have known for exactly 9 years. You can therefore imagine I know him quite well, especially that we were born on exactly the same day. As a fellow Leo, I can safely say that he is determined. Having an Italian father and a Lebanese mother, he had the opportunity a few years ago to go live and do business in Rome, his city of origin. And there he went, determined to make it happen. A few years later, I’m sitting in Vicolo 88 – Garden, amazed by what he has accomplished.

While we were in Rome 2 weeks ago, we went to Vicolo88 twice (the garden, that is – because there are two Vicolo 88: one in the center in Via Dell’Orso, more of a Bistrot; and one in EUR, in the outskirts of the city, which is more for the summer and the good weather and is outdoor with a garden and fabulous Italian music).

Once you arrive at Vicolo88 – Garden (Viale America, 18 – 00144 – Eur – Roma – Tel +39 06 87728001), you immediately feel good, relaxed and ready for a really nice and cool evening. A Spritz is a must upon your arrival (it’s literally one of the best Spritz I have ever tasted), followed by (hold on tight) potato peels, fried and sprinkled with pecorino cheese! Yes. Believe it my friends.

What followed was an array of beautiful and tasty dishes that make me want to go back and eat up. I’ll let your eyes savor them for now – until you’re sitting there yourselves!

Papercup Store: Behind The Scenes

Having lived abroad, watched movies and traveled loads of times, one always looks for things he learnt to love. As Lebanon is not an easy country and you spend your time longing for things you saw abroad that don’t exist in your own country, it’s a delight to find a hidden space that could possibly be “it”.

So when I contacted Rania and she agreed to chat about cakes, coffee, travel and books, I immediately jumped at the chance. Who could ask for better, right?

papercup-store

Papercup (www.papercupstore.com) is a bookstore located in Mar Mikhael, in Madrid Street (parallel to the mainroad). You can check their website for a detailed map. They also serve coffee and cake over there for a “coffee-infused book therapy” as they state agreeably.

Rania is Papercup Store’s owner. She has a publishing background, has worked in New York, is a reader and a traveler and also a new mom! And here’s a summary of our conversation.

papercup-12

Why a place like this and in this location?

I was living in the Mar Mikhael neighbourhood in 2005 and loved it. I saw that what was missing was a library and decided to go ahead with the project. I found a notebook I had 12 years ago in New York. That’s when I realized I was already thinking about the idea then because the whole plan for the place was in this notebook! I wanted to create a place where I’d personally like to hang out on a Saturday.

papercup-8

Why design, travel and art as a focus for books?

I worked in publishing abroad and then moved back to Lebanon 11 years ago and worked in distribution. I saw that there was something missing in the choice of books and noticed that people around me saw this gap as well. The gap was in things less mainstream and commercial. So this completed the idea of the bookstore.  I saw there was actually a market for it.

papercup-books

How do you decide which cake you’re going to offer on a specific day? Where do you get the recipe? Do you bake it yourself?

It’s my sister who bakes the cakes. She’s actually the chef and owner of Frosty Palace (facing papercup, one of the best burgers and milkshakes ever). She basically decides which cake to bake. I just let her know we need a cake and she happily bakes it! There’s only 1 cake because it’s a tiny space and the point is a bookstore with a tiny coffee shop.

papercup-6

papercup-cafe

papercup-cafe-4

Where do you find the cool things and books you sell?

I just do really a lot of research, spend my time looking for these kinds of things because I like them and because I’m curious. I used to choose things alone but I now have a small team that helps me choose as well. We show each other everything we like ranging from books to cards to maps, etc…

papercup-moleskine

papercup-11

Who are your clients?

There’s no specific client profile. Clients are mainly teachers, parents, artists, amateurs in art, design and photography.

How do you market yourself? 

I don’t advertise. There’s no budget for that. My cousin is an architect and she did the whole place. At the time, there were a lot of available spaces in Mar Mikhael. I didn’t want the main road, I preferred the store to be a hidden gem, not too commercial.

For the opening, we sent out 400 private invitations and since it’s a small country and everyone knows everyone, word of mouth played its role to perfection. We also got a lot of international press.

papercup-9

Are you a cook? A traveler?

I love to cook but now I have no time. I used to host a lot of dinners however and try a lot of new stuff in the kitchen. I used to travel a lot but now I just had a child so there is a change in lifestyle happening. When I travel, I really travel with passion.

papercup-10Favorite book?

I have no favorite book but I can say the type of books I like the most are novels. I don’t sell novels, however, only once a year, we offer a guest table of summer reads. Every year, someone different (a guest) creates the table. The approach is basically that they make a list of their books with a written synopsis of why they chose the book and why people should read it and the table is displayed for a month. This year, Holly was the guest. She worked in publishing in New York, she’s a papercup customer and a big reader. She also reviews books and she’s a huge fiction reader.

Favorite cake?

My favorite cake is my mom’s carrot cake. It’s just the best carrot cake ever. It has been my birthday cake since the age of 16.

Favorite country?

I can’t say I have a favorite country but there are some cities I absolutely love: London, Stockholm, New York, Portland, Seattle, Melbourne. I also love the Pacific North West, calmer than cities.

Any advice for the young ambitious people of Lebanon?

Try to discover the world and leave the nest for a while. A company can easily be opened abroad as well and it can be managed better than here as you won’t have to worry about the basics. In Lebanon, if you want to survive, you have to create your own bubble but then again that’s not necessarily healthy.

Rania just recently gave birth to a baby boy. She’s discovering motherhood and the moms’ world. Kind of like re-discovering herself. Thanks for this lovely chat! 🙂

DUNKIN’ DONUTS unveils special Ramadan treats

In everyday life, we all get very busy. We run around trying to accomplish an infinite amount of things, trying to be part of everything, following those guidelines we read in articles everyday (“10 habits of people who follow their dreams” or “5 things naturally fit people do differently”, etc…), and aspiring to be perfect. It sure is fun and exciting. But comes a moment when you just need to breathe. Sure, you can go on vacation, you can plan getaways, but what if you just want to catch your breath for like 10 minutes a day? Some of you do that by smoking a cigarette outside, some surf the internet, but some others find comfort in their favorite brands. Or more specifically, their favorite food or coffee brands. Those gigantic chains have made it a habit to touch their customers by personalizing everything. So when I got the news yesterday that Dunkin’ Donuts Middle East was serving up specially designed star and crescent-shaped donuts to mark the holy month of Ramadan, I thought this was really great! These special donuts are available across all Dunkin’ Donuts outlets in the UAE.

 

Dunkin-Donuts--Ramadan-resized

Your favorite brands just never stop reminding you what life is really about: people you love, marvelous places to explore and rich experiences! They’re our breathers, our wake up call to CARPE DIEM.

Beginning with a single restaurant in Quincy, Massachusetts, the Dunkin’ Donuts story has been one of epic success. Over the years the international quick serve giant, part of the Dunkin’ Brands Group headquartered in Canton, Massachusetts, has captured the loyalty of a worldwide following and is today present in over 33 countries and operates nearly 11,000 restaurants worldwide. It has established itself as a favourite among the discerning clientele in the UAE with a decade of beginning operations in the Emirates. Today the company has 74 outlets all across the UAE, serving up a delectable blend of donuts, delicious hot and iced coffee, hot and iced lattes, cappuccinos, coolatta slush drinks, munchkins and other baked goods and beverages.
